Video: Ulster's Chris Henry believes team can still clinch title glory

By Kirsten Elder

Meeting Zebre at home in Saturday's re-arranged game with, weather-permitting, that much-needed try bonus also coming, will see Ulster leapfrog Scarlets to bring themselves up to fourth in the PRO12 table.

It will, just as long as maximum points are gained, also put Les Kiss' side four ahead of their West Wales rivals, with five regulation games to go, but the significance won't be lost on anyone as Ulster will have a foothold in a play-off position.

While the wins have been coming, the performances haven't quite hit the mark with the first meeting at Zebre seeing Ulster invite the bottom-placed Italians back into the game.

And last week, when hosting Treviso, they were far too inaccurate up front than could be wholly excused by the dreadful weather.

Without hesitation, Chris Henry said, "This time, we've got to hold on to the ball and really take it to them. Last week (against Treviso) there was probably an issue there as well"

"We have to fix those. It's all got to be about ourselves this week."
